16x16 is no room for an amateur

So I'm by no means an artist, but I play a critic on the world wide web.

16x16 icons, which this article below talks about in the context of the little webpage tab/bookmark icons, are *really* difficult to get an idea across with.

Unfortunatly, WinXP uses them all over the place. You can't just take your 32x32 or 48x48 icon, shrink it to 16x16 and get something the same effect. Despite Vista's new 256x256 icon size, the issue will still remain.

Some well done 16x16 icons:
